A lot of people use Facebook. We know this. You know this. It's no secret.

But, for some reason, on Monday, way more people than usual decided to log onto the social network. According to CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook hit 1 billion individual users in a single day on 22 August.

That's equivalent to 1 in 7 people on Earth. Keep in mind just last January Facebook confirmed almost 1.4 billion people are on Facebook. To put that into perspective for you: 20 per cent of the world's population is currently updating status' and liking listicles' about ways to save you time.

Although nothing about Monday stands out on our minds, we'll admit we probably checked Facebook to see our friends' latest posts about what they did over the weekend or where they're going for lunch. You know - the usual.

Zuckerberg took the milestone as an opportunity to get all emotional on us, saying this is "just the beginning" of connecting the world: "A more open and connected world is a better world. It brings stronger relationships with those you love, a stronger economy with more opportunities, and a stronger society that reflects all of our values."

Okay, Zuck. We get it.
